The news follows last week's announcement that Augustin Hadelich also will join the YSM violin faculty this fall.
"Like many of our performance faculty, she will remain active as a concert artist both in the United States and abroad," said YSM Dean Robert Blocker.
"I am ecstatic to join the YSM family," Murray said on her Instagram page.
A regular recitalist and soloist with major orchestras around the world, Murray received an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2004 and was BBC New Generation Artist from 2008 through 2010. A 2012 recipient of the Sphinx Medal of Excellence, she was first-place Laureate of the inaugural Sphinx Competition in 1998. Murray earned artist diplomas from Indiana University, where she studied primarily with Yuval Yaron, and The Juilliard School. She has made several recordings, including the Ysaÿe Violin Sonatas (2014); The American Scene (2014), and Bernstein’s Serenade (2014).
